Arrival story: Arrived at Waggin’ Tails as a stray brought in from animal control. Teddy was suffering from mange/skin issues, Giardia and IBD. He's been treated and is healthy and ready to find his loving, forever home.

Approximate Age / Weight: 3-4 Years Old / 67 lbs.

Personality: This handsome fella is such a good boy! He is smart, friendly and eager to learn. He passed basic training as a star student and also received his Canine Good Citizen certificate. He is calm and unfazed by loud noises.

Teddy loves his walks and is good on a leash. He loves car rides and loves getting sniffs out the window. He is also an awesome built-in alarm clock if you need to get up at 5am :)

Although Teddy has remained calm around children at adoption events, we feel Teddy would do best in a home without young children. He can get nervous and over-excited with erratic and fast movements, as well as play wrestling. He likes to play, but settles down nicely to chew a bone or snooze.

Teddy does not care for being crated and has been perfect when given free range of the home. He finds comfort in canine friends when no humans are around. He has great house manners and has not played with anything other than his toys. Teddy likes to tag along to inspect your household chores and daily routines.

Forever home: Teddy would love a family that will take him on long walks and give him lots of playtime. He loves other dogs and would enjoy canine pals closer to his size to romp with. Teddy does not do well with cats or other small critters. He needs a fenced-in yard. No electric fences for this prey-driven boy, please.

Arrangements can be made to meet a dog outside of Saturday adoption events after an application is submitted and approved.

About Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit rescue group. Our experienced and dedicated volunteers donate their spare time to rescue, rehabilitate, foster, and re-home all breeds of homeless dogs at risk of being euthanized or sold to research from area and rural kill shelters. We are supported solely through donations and fund-raising efforts. Our volunteers receive no monetary payment for their activities. Instead, their reward is the knowledge that a dog's life has been saved that otherwise would have been lost.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We typically show every Saturday from 12-3 p.m. (please see our website for exact location details). We often have other special events that are listed on our website, as well. Potential adopters can also schedule meetings with the individual dog's foster parent since all of our dogs are in fosters homes and we do not own a shelter.

Our Adoption Process...

We utilize an application process because we have worked hard at nurturing and working with the animals in our care. In order to ensure that these formerly abandoned, neglected and abused animals never find themselves in the shelter/rescue system again, we screen applicants so that the applicant is matched to an animal that is suited to the applicant's lifestyle.

It is our job at Waggin’ Tails not only to find new homes for our animals but to ensure these animals never have an opportunity to breed again. All of Waggin’ Tails dogs will be spayed/neutered at the time of adoption unless the dog is not of age and/or the dog has a medical condition that would prohibit sterilization at the time of adoption. Dogs under 6 months of age and dogs that cannot be sterlilized due to a medical condition will be adopted out on a spay/neuter contract which means the adopter must agree to have the dog sterilized by a specified date.

Adoption Fees
Adult Dogs: $225
Small Breed Dogs: $275
Senior Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months): $250 + $50 refundable Spay/Neuter Deposit

What does the adoption fee Include?
The adoption fees above cover all age-appropriate vaccines; heartworm/fecal test; spay/neuter (unless otherwise stated); and microchipping. When necessary, the dogs have blood panels, dentals, and professional grooming as well. In other words, we do everything necessary for the dog when they come into our care.
